The Calignaia Bridge

Calignaia bridge, Livorno
The Calignaia bridge was built in the early 1950s and has a span of 100 meters. On the north end of the bridge there is a renowned restaurant with a spectacular view on the sea. [Photo by Maurizio]

There is a similarity between this structure and the Bixby Creek Bridge, in California. Faraway, under the arch, we can see the railway bridge. [Photo by Maurizio]

I can't remember seeing a bridge before built with so many rectangular supports.

Very nice. If I just saw the bridge and its natural setting and was asked to identify the county, Italy might have been my 70th guess.
